Mickey Mantle wins his 3rd MVP Award

DID YOU KNOW ? The New York Yankees signed Mickey Mantle to a minor-league contract in 1949, the day he graduated high school. He was paid $400 for the remainder of the season and a $1,100 signing bonus. A Yankee for his entire career, among Mantle's many accomplishments are all-time World Series records for home runs (18), runs scored (42), and runs batted in (40). He once hit a ball left-handed that cleared the right-field roof at Tiger Stadium in Detroit estimated to have traveled 643 feet. In 1956, Mantle won the Triple Crown, leading the majors with a .353 batting average, 52 HR and 130 RBI on the way to his first of three MVP awards.
